The 21-year-old was the subject of summer speculation over his future, but confirmed Burnley received no approaches for his services.
"There were not phone calls," he said. "Obviously there were links, apparently, about going to Newcastle and a few other clubs.
"But I didn't hear anything and the club didn't hear anything so as far as I know I'm here now, a Burnley player.
"I'm happy to be here because I want to get as many games as I can and progress.
"If I do play in the Premier League, when it happens it happens."
